Do you ever think about that phrase? That thanks is something we actually give?
requires effort and thought. It's rarely done by accident. It's
purposeful. It is a sacrifice of some sort, I had it now I give it to
you. Giving brings the focus off of me and on to the recipient of the gift.
I hope this week you will "give" thanks.
And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. ~ Colossians 3:17 (NLT)
